PANDEMONIUM – Devilri Extended Edition
Old Temple Records
After a quick search you’ll find out that the name PANDEMONIUM is rather famous in the heavy metal scene regardless the genre. However, the PANDEMONIUM we’re dealing with here originate from Poland and they are veterans of the extreme metal scene since they were formed in 1989. Now “Devilri” isn’t a new release but in fact it’s the band’s second demo work which was originally released in 1992. Their current label decided to re-release it along with some rehearsals and live material and this is how we end up presenting it here after it’s been out for over two decades. As mentioned above PANDEMONIUM are considered to be a cult underground band, but to be honest with you I never really got into their music, never really liked them since I find their songs rather boring and one dimensional reminding me of old school CELTIC FROST. Their sound can be identified within the doom/death metal branch with nerveless mid tempo rhythms and no imagination. So for me personally there is nothing here that can keep my interest intact.
